Grenland Cup 1/10 Buggy – Report

Grenland Cup 1/10 Buggy – Report

The third round of the Grenland Cup 1/10th Electric Buggy Cup was held in Skien, Norway. Local hero Joakim Nicolaisen set the pace in the qualifiers to put his Team Associated buggy in front of the Xray XB2 prototype of Malin Karlsen, who had a maiden outing in the 1/10th Buggy Cup. The first of the triple A-mains had Joakim scoring an easy win after an early mistake of Malin who only managed a 3rd place at the end as her buggy became difficult to drive during the race. Simen Halstensen came in 2nd in the opening A-final. A2 had again Joakim coming out successfully which handed him the day’s overall win early. Behind him Malin again made a mistake early in the race which denied her to challenge Joakim for the win but she was able to hold Simen behind thanks to a new set of tyres that made her buggy more constant to drive. In the last A-main Malin was finally able to take the win after a series of early mistakes by Joakim. Behing Joakim Nicolaisen (Team Associated) Malin Karlsen (Xray) ended the day on the runner-up spot while Simen Halstensen (Team Associated) rounded out the podium in 3rd.
